Pintertest Kitchen 18: It's Not You Enchilada Pasta Casserole, It's Me.

So I'll just be honest.


This dish was not my favorite.


It's ok.


Easy.


Slightly spicy.


My kids wouldn't really look at it.


But they decided they are vegan now.


Well, vegans who eat chicken nuggets.


I don't know that I will repeat it.


Dave didn't love it.


I might have screwed it up by replacing the egg noodles with ziti.


And I served it in the same dish as my regular ziti.


Which is his favorite of all time.


So he described this as a ziti oasis.


Also, it was difficult to make look pretty.


Mine was less festive red like the picture and more brainy gray.


And I just don't trust gray food.


Maybe I needed some parsley.

You win some, you lose some.


On a happier, more redemptive note, I made these a while back and they are delicious.


What have you been up to?

  2. Vegans who eat chicken nuggets- haha! That's great! I was a vegetarian like my new best friend in elementary school until lunch time when it was hot dog day. Never again! ;-)

    So sorry it was such a disappointing dish. Those stuffed shells sound divine though!

  3. This is why I have a separate board for recipes that I will make again. Too many have had to be unpinned.
    It's totally me. Not them.
    Ha.

  4. I'm sorry you had to break up with this recipe.

    Also, the girls sound like laura who is a self described "chickaturkatarian"
    or at least she was when she was little. :)

  5. I made that also and felt the same way. Plus, when I make a new Mexican recipe, I want it to stand out. I already have 47 other recipes that are pretty much the same way. Oh well, we all have our different tastes.
